    Five up
    1. Georgia QB Aaron Murray: Murray played one of the best games of his career on Saturday. The senior signal-caller led the Bulldogs to a thrilling 44-41 victory over LSU. He completed 20 of 34 passes for 298 yards, four touchdowns and one interception while also rushing for a score. He showed outstanding poise in the pocket throughout the contest, and he moved quickly through his progressions to find the open receiver. Murray lacks ideal measurables and arm strength, but he's playing the best football of his college career and has the Bulldogs in contention for an SEC championship.
    ยป Ask 5: Who's better, Aaron Murray or Zach Mettenberger?
    2. LSU QB Zach Mettenberger:
    Murray played great, but he wasn't the most impressive quarterback in the LSU-Georiga game. Mettenberger put up monster numbers (23-of-37 for 372 yards and three touchdowns) and made several "wow" throws against the Bulldogs. He didn't come away with the victory, but Mettenberger was the biggest winner in terms of his NFL draft stock. During the game, I received several text messages from NFL scouts and personnel executives praising the play of LSU's senior quarterback. His combination of size, arm strength and accuracy is very attractive to NFL teams in search of a quarterback.

    3. Central Florida QB Blake Bortles: Bortles put together a very solid performance in a losing effort against 12th-ranked South Carolina. He completed 25 of 36 passes for 358 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. The junior quarterback has excellent size (6-foot-4, 230 pounds), touch and mobility. He was under an intense pass rush in the second half, but he still found a way to make some big throws down the field. I'm eager to see how he plays in three weeks, when the Knights take on Teddy Bridgewater and Louisville.
